Information

Assassins is one of the most controversial musicals ever written. Composer Stephan Sondheim and librettist, John Weidman transcend time and space according to their whims, thereby creating a wickedly funnily revue-style portrayal of nine men and women who attempted to assassinate American Presidents. Bursting with dark humor and featuring some of the sweetest melodies Sondheim ever composed, the musical poignantly reflects on the possibility of being able to change the world by simply pulling a trigger. Or, is an assailant only taking a constitutional right in hand for their personal “pursuit of happiness?”
